If we do not like the idea to cover the full length of our room we should probably choose some alternative shape. There is variety of area rugs to choose from. We can find them in different shapes. The most popular shapes are rectangular and round but we can also find them in hexagonal, octagonal and oval. If we prefer to cover only small floor areas in our home we can maybe choose round area rugs of a smaller size and we can place it underneath the table for example or we can also place them in the hallway or the bathroom, it is really up to us.
Rugs can be made of different materials and in different methods. They can be made of natural materials such as cotton or hemp but they can also be made of artificial synthetic blends fabrics. The synthetic area rugs are considered to be durable and require low maintenance. Very often they are made of acryl, polypropylene or nylon. Another great thing about them is that they usually come as stain resistant and their colors do not fade even after long use. Sometimes natural materials and synthetics are combined in order to give unique type of rugs which can satisfy the tastes of many different people.
The method by which they are produced can often tell us a lot about their value and of course their price. The handmade rugs are considered as masterpieces and are pretty costly so not everyone can afford them. They are usually made in special technique like hand knotted or hand tufted for example. Besides being handmade they can be machine made and very often there are rugs whose quality and visual appeal is as valued as the handmade ones but again there are differences in price and we can also get pretty good imitations of a certain handmade style by a more affordable price.
